Glueing question That's right!
 
OK ladies, I've been on here for almost 20 months now and I don't recall my question being addressed. I've been making a small amount of hairbows and lots of ribbon sculptures. My problem is this HOW do you keep the glue from showing and trying to get off all the little "spider webs" ???? Sometimes I get so frustrated because I think I've made a really nice sculpture and then I see all the glue and webs. PLEASE help. Any and every comment will be appreciated. Thanks in advance :wallbash:

-_- wish I could help. Maybe try getting a smaller nose glue gun/mini glue gun.

for the little spider webs run a blowdryer over your sculpture and they will vanish. as for the glue it takes practice to get only a tiny bit of glue on the ribbon....just swipe the glue gun over the ribbon or use a stick to apply it. i once had to remove a glue mistake and goo gone actually worked great.
hope this helps

Yes, use a blowdryer to get the little glue webs off. You can also use it to warm up glue to undo a mistake.

I've also had some luck with keeping my gluesticks in the freezer, I pull them out as I need to load the glue gun. It keeps me from getting the strings.
